Reading List

On the advice of Tin Can Assassin:

The Last Pendragon by Holly Chism. It's an Arthurian tale with a twist set in the modern world.

The biggest "WTF?" moment for me was when their location was given as in the Blue Ridge Mountains "not too far from Raleigh" (3-4 hours as the Mustang speeds, depending on blue light density) but as the tale progresses it sort of makes sense. No spoilers, read the book.

And for the record, even though I'm in the neighborhood (sort of) I certainly did NOT go to Chapel Hill to find the bookstore owned by dragons (although that would be totally cool - and OK, one spoiler but you still have to read the book to see where it fits), but if I had, it would have been nice to have had better directions.

Anyway, if you have any interest at all in the legend of King Arthur check this one out, it will be well worth your time.

Also please note the addition of the anti-soma blog to the blogroll. You can find more of her books there.

The Leaky Cauldron isn't found on Charing Cross Road in London. I doubt the book shop/pub can be found by those who aren't already in the know, either. :)

Sure, NOW you tell...uh, I mean, I didn't figure it would be, which is why I didn't go looking for it. ;)

Thanks for dropping by!
